Residents of Akuse are accusing government for failing them.
They say successive governments have failed to hear their cry to place Akuse in the Greater Accra region.
They described Akuse as desolate and blame it on the placement of the town in the Lower Manya District of the Eastern Region.
Some of the residents registered their protest when they attempted stopping the biometric registration exercise from taking place.
Five people were picked up this morning for attempting to disrupt the exercise.
Joy News' Eastern Regional Correspondent, Benjamin Tetteh has been to Akuse and reported that an NDC party vehicle early Tuesday morning urged residents of Akuse to go out and vote.
Registration however delayed due to a court action over the status of Akuse.
Even though a court injunction is pending the EC feels it's time to go ahead with the exercise.
So today, residents of six electoral areas in Akuse and Amedeka have been trickling to the registration centres to get their biometric ID cards.
But it seems many prefer to wait and see, at least for now. One woman told Joy News she went to her hometown in the Volta region to register in the first exercise.
Others went to nearby areas in Osudoku to register. But some young men sitting in a kiosk at the main lorry park said they are not prepared to register yet, and their reason- they feel let down by successive governments.
